At Podcamp Toronto 2012, Heather Leson led a session called Dispatches of Disruption. The description of the session was advertised like this: “Every day someone uses the power of the Internet to change their world. What does it mean to be a disrupter? an innovator? a volunteer? What lessons can you activate at home? at work? I’ll share some examples of disruption aimed at corruption, elections, violence, potholes, agriculture, burgers, #futurewewant, and emergency response.”

She talks to us about how the world is using new media and new technology for social change, action and activism.

I’ll admit that many of the tools, techniques and ideas were new to me. Before this year’s podcamp, I had no idea what a crisis map was let alone how to use one. I hope that what you get from this audio is new to you too.
